Are you asking about actual GS (girevoy sport) competitors? If that is the case I suspect deep squat strength is not impressive, but is completely unnecessary for their sport. The pressing strength may not be that impressive for that matter as the jerk is all about efficiently launching the bell overhead to an immediate locked out position.

The generalist KB enthusiast may or may not have balanced development...pistols? Accessory movements like DL, Squat? Tough to tell.
